PRESIDENT’S REPORT — Dave Schaefer:
Be sure to shoo livestock away from both the gate on Brewer Road and the gate into the field. We have had problems with horses going out the main gate as well as the land owner’s buffalo coming into the flying field. Land owner does not like using cars to herd the buffalo out of the field because he feels that
they may get hurt. So be very vigilant about gently moving them away from the field gate before opening.
Observe social distancing while at the field.
Remote I.D. – The FAA is not expediting this so don’t expect any action before December.
